Gaza Mosque Served as Entrance to Terror Tunnel that Reached Israel – Capt. (res.) Itamar Segal (Israel Hayom)
I had the privilege of fighting shoulder to shoulder with the soldiers of a reserve combat battalion in the Paratroopers Brigade during the 2014 Gaza war.
For about 30 days, we pursued elusive tunnel openings, located enemy command centers, and fought Hamas terrorists.
In the middle of one neighborhood – a major Hamas stronghold – combat engineering soldiers were ordered to blow up an enormous mosque and the water tower next to it.
A year ago in Tel Aviv, representatives of the group Breaking the Silence were handing out postcards depicting the “crimes” of the IDF. I immediately recognized the mosque and water tower.
“I was there,” I told anyone who wanted to listen. The water tower had been used as a Hamas lookout point, and the mosque covered the entrance to a huge terror tunnel that started inside the mosque and ended inside one of the kibbutzim on the Israeli side of the border fence.
